Spring Chess Tournament

S

outh Central Service Cooperative (SCSC) and Mankato Community Education/Recreation (CER) partnered April 1 to offer the Spring Chess Tournament at Dakota Meadows Middle School to students from across south central Minnesota. Fifty-nine students in grades K-12 from multiple schools in Eagle Lake, Fairmont, Lakefield, Mankato, Northfield and Waseca competed in primary, elementary and middle and upper divisions based on grade levels. The tournament was a Swiss-style tournament in which students are not eliminated. SCSC and CER feel these tournaments foster a competitive spirit without discouraging young players from continuing to play chess. All players enjoyed a pizza lunch and received ribbons awarded to top students in their grade level. Medals were awarded to primary, elementary and middle division champions. For information about area chess tournaments or starting a chess club in your school or community, please contact Mary Hillmann: mhillmann@mnscsc.org or Melanie Schmidt: mschmi3@isd77.k12.mn.us. Congratulations to the students that participated! Students were awarded by grade level and also as division champions:
